Sauteed Seitan in Miso Sauce

Serves 3-4
1/2 cup miso
4 T water
4 tsps sake or dry sherry
2 T sweetener *see note that follows ( I like to use 4 T apricot or plum jam)
1 pound seitan, sliced
2 T vegetable oil
1 tsp chili oil
2 leeks (white part only-clean thoroughly to remove dirt), julienned
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 inch ginger, chopped
2-3 carrots, julienned
2-3 stalks celery, julienned

1. Prepare sauce by mixing miso, water, sake, and sweetener. Simmer sauce over low heat for 3 minutes.
2. In skillet, saute seitan to crisp and brown. Set aside.
3. Over medium heat, add vegetable oil and chili oil to empty skillet. Add leeks and saute for 3 minutes until translucent.
4. Add garlic and ginger and saute for 1 minute.
5. Add carrots and celery; saute for 5 minutes.
